Interstate 55 spends just over 12 miles in Tennessee when it travels through Memphis, but then it runs north to south through through the state of Mississippi for 290.5 miles. I-55 links Memphis with the cities of Winona, Jackson and McComb in Mississippi before it links I-10 and I-12 in Louisiana west of New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain. The attractions of Jackson are mentioned in the posting for I-20. New Orleans and the many activities of the Lake Ponchartrain area are located at the southern end of this interstate highway.

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for the choice may include the safety of the surrounding area, the availability of good hotels and restaurants or proximity to the interstate. Please make sure to give the exit number or a description of the location. For example, when I discuss I-40, I would recommend Exit 145 in Oklahoma City. Many hotels and restaurants were located at this exit and I felt safe in the area. This exit was very convenient for easily continuing west without the hassle of dealing with early morning rush hour traffic.
